Re: What is the view on online/distance learning masters?

I don’t really know for sure as it’s only been a year since I graduated and last year I was focusing mainly on my first Clin psy application whilst staying in the same job. I got an interview last year but this was based on a research exam not my form per se. Interestingly my feedback for a research...

Re: What is the view on online/distance learning masters?

I did a distance learning masters - I don’t believe they’re viewed any differently than others - not that I’ve heard anyway! What I would say is depending on the course you may need to be available for certain things in the day time, for example I attended weekly online tutorials as part of my MSc a...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

4. I'm seeing a new client next week for dog phobia... I wonder if the local dogs shelter will let us do exposure / behavioural experiments there. But then I might cry in front of my patient which would not be ideal. Hmm. We do dog phobia treatment at my work and use PAT dogs, I’ve also worked with...

Re: Eating disorders interveiw

If you were to work in the team it would be very important they were aware in order to appropriately support you. Whether that’s in the interview or through Occupational Health I’m not sure. I think no one can know about how you’ll feel working there, that’s a very personal thing but don’t feel pres...

Re: Interview for AP Band 4 at Stoke Mandeville Hospital

I had an interview for an AP post at Stoke Mandeville a couple of years back and it was one of the most positive experiences (despite the rejection!). I have no idea if it is likely to be the same interviewers of course, but they were friendly and tried to get the best out of you. I’d say like any i...

Re: Reserve following Interview for AP roles

Hawke has given some really lovely reflections there for you to think about. I just wanted to add my recent experience... I interviewed for an AP role several months ago and was given feedback that they felt I had done really well and was the ‘second’ for the post, they said there was a chance a new...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1.) Still feeling rather irritated by an opportunity coming up at work as soon as I left, it felt a little bit of a slap in the face but sure it was unintentional 2.) I am a constant bundle of anxiety at the minute, I don’t do well with change and concerns about how things are going to work is reall...

Re: Change to PWP CBT therapy or assistant clinical psych

I’m quite surprised by your description of the role of a trainee forensic psychologist... the trainee where I currently work does a lot more than described! She designed and delivered a psychology group, and does mostly clinical work doing 1:1 interventions as well as running groups, delivers traini...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1.) Can’t believe it but after what seems like forever, all the disappointments and feeling I would never get anywhere I get offered two psych jobs in one week! So pleased to have had to make a decision I never thought I’d have to make - which job to take! Think I made the right call. 2.) Feeling ve...

Re: Out of employment/education. What can I do to help myself now?

It’s very frustrating taking those first steps on the ladder but you’ll get there! Try and enjoy the journey as much as you can and not race around and stress yourself out and focusing on doing too much - easier said than done I know!
